Keen ears, Mr Tell - the Workingman's Dead reissue is indeed mislabeled, the UJB is from 10/4/70 and not 12/23/70.... Must've been some confusion in the vault!

If you direct your ears to the "edited version" of Viola Lee on the Grateful Dead reissue that CPW mentioned, you'll find it is a different version than the album take....though it's chopped into tiny pieces.
I read somewhere, Garcia said they recorded a few takes of Viola Lee and picked the one they liked best for the album, so it's likely more complete takes are in the vault. No doubt waiting for the "super-duper-double-disc-reissue" next decade....

that'd almost be worth the wait, to get the uneviserated alternate serious '67 studio take of Viola Lee, to be restored for the 50th anniversary of the bummer of love in 2017!
